A broadside advertising a woman's biography of the late President Garfield, available from four different publishers. The prospectus touts President Garfield's public service, the author's credentials, and gives information on the styles of the book and its various prices. The publisher also advertises here for sales agents, claiming the book has been "in preparation since the shooting" and is "ready to deliver." Incentive is noted, with the broadside claiming the "grandest chance to make quick sales and handsome profits offered for years!!"

Though we locate about fifty copies of the book in OCLC, we locate no copies of the present broadside advertisement.
